The University of Cambridge has confirmed there will be no face-to-face lecturers during the next academic year.

Due to current social distancing guidelines, lectures will be available online, although there is a possibility to host smaller teaching groups in person.

The university will review the decision if government advice on social distancing changes.

A statement from Cambridge said: "The university is constantly adapting to changing advice as it emerges during this pandemic."

"Given that it is likely that social distancing will continue to be required, the university has decided there will be no face-to-face lectures during the next academic year."

"Lectures will continue to be made available online and it may be possible to host smaller teaching groups in person, as long as this conforms to social distancing requirements."

"This decision has been taken now to facilitate planning, but as ever, will be reviewed should there be changes to official advice on coronavirus."
